best grille on the netz! custom carbon fiber

I got a little something on the way for the aero, totally custom, as part of my mission to make this wagon badass.

Best grille on the netz? NO JOKE!

It is wingless style, I think it makes the front very aggressive looking. I went the extra mile and requested it be made with Hirsch style mesh. that way I don't have to worry about the paint flaking off or rust. plus I think it looks more "factory" than gutter guard

it will look super on the black aero with my carbon wing.

I can't even wait!!!!! will post pics when it arrives on my car, with the other new additions/changes.

I like the screens...really sweet looking, but not a fan of the carbon fiber look. Either way nice work! Where did you get that screen material?

the carbon is actually more understated in natural light... and will hold up better than painted chrome. I had originally thought of blacking out the stock grill, and then I thought up this. if you saw my carbon wing in person you might not realize it's CF until you get up close, especially on a black car.

anyways, to each his own, right?

I don't know where to get the Hirsch mesh, sorry. My saab connection in Taiwan who made this for me acquird it somehow. it wasn't cheap!

The car in the pic is not yours? Looks dark blue. I imagine that the CF will blend much better with black. I definitely like it, don't take it the wrong way. Always interested in custom modifications that everyone does. I couldn't tell if the mesh was metal or plastic from the pics. It looks really clean.

That is awesome ! I would be really interested in doing that for my car as well. I tried putting mesh in my 2002 9-5's grill and I ended up breaking my grill... lol

to answer the questions now that I am sobered up from the 4th.

yes my car is black, that wa not my car in the photo.
the carbon won't stand out as much with a black car and no flash photogrpahy

the mesh is indeed plastic "Hirsch mesh", so no chipping paint, or rusting.

thanks for the comments. I kept my stock chrome grill for winter so I can keep this one nice and pretty and salt free.
